Healthy Mouth = Healthy Body
Your Galesburg dentist says it – and there’s no denying it. Your mouth and your body have direct effects on each other. Medication, hormone changes, stress, malnutrition and so much more can take a toll on your teeth and gums. But the reverse is also true – when your mouth is infected or unbalanced, your body will suffer. It’s kind of crazy when you look at the facts – and scary!
- Gum disease has been linked to everything from inflammation and pregnancy concerns to strokes, heart attacks, and cancers.
- Oral infections can lead to a compromised immune system. When the immune system is compromised, the human body becomes much less able to protect itself from attack by bacterial, parasitic, fungal and viral infections, as well as from the growth of tumor cells. For example, immunosuppressed people are even more likely to develop skin cancer after sunburn than someone with a healthy immune system.
- TMJ disorder, an imbalance of the bite, jaw, and muscles that support them, can lead to everything from headaches to broken teeth, as well as triggering chronic migraines and sleep apnea.
Clearly, keeping up with your dentistry is crucial to your health as well as to preserving your smile! Our dental care in Galesburg can help with that!
